. with that poll, showing 48% would say today that they would vote for scott brown and 40% saying they would vote for ed marky, i'm declaring him for the winner to be. those numbers compared to the numbers you saw, hillary clinton way ahead of barack obama and that gap was closed. i think it is going to be closeable by ed marky. he has three million raised and ready to spend. >> yes, that gives him the opportunity to get his message out. and even though he has been in congress for 36 years, for 36 years, he has run from one little district in the entire state. this will be his first statewide race. that might explain why a third of the people polled haven't heard of him. he is big on climate change. and so, you know, let's see if your prediction comes true. jump in with me here on this one. you know, i wanted to jump in with you on the tim pawlenty thing. i knew i would be hearing about that tonight. >> i want to know who else is going to jump in. >> my point is scott brown is the current republican senator. he is polling below 50 and when he was running against elizabeth warren who started off n
the symptom or adding to the problem. >>> and can anyone beat sko brown? >>> good day. we're live in washington this afternoon. the lines of communication between the president, leaders of congress are open. whether those lines are used repeatedly over the next few days to reach a fiscal cliff deal is anybody's guess. joining me now for our daily fix, nbc's kelly o'donnell is live on capitol hill. kelly, i want to start with you. senator scott brown just tweeted out to all his followers that he was getting on a plane heading to washington. the president has apparently sent over a new deal to the senate. what can you tell us about this new fiscal cliff deal that president obama has sent over to senator leaders? >> well, the power of social media to get the word out. gop sources say in the conversation with the president, he indicated that he does have a bill he would like to bring forward to the hill today. they have not seen that. it would be a package to deal with averting the fiscal cliff. we can infer from that with what the president said before he went to the family vacation
a great night. >> okay massachusetts, are you ready for another scott brown senate campaign? >> there are so many things we need to get done. >> today i made the decision. >> withdrawing her own name. >> not to continue to be considered. >> she had to remove her name. >> to be the next secretary of state. >> to be the best thing for our country. >> i don't believe she deserves to be promoted. >> i don't trust her. >> this is not going to help republicans at all. >> there are so many things we need to get done. >> most of you want compromise. >> the two sides are talking. >> let's get real. >> let really get real. >> tensions in washington are nearing critical mass. >> here we are at the 11th hour. >> 18 days. >> the republicans sent a letter. >> we made a reasonable offer. >> it is this issue spending. >> let's all take a deep breath. >> voters trust the president to handle negotiation. >> are we back to square one? >> here we are again. >> the president is not serious about cutting spending. >> it doesn't make seps. >> but to give a tax cut to the wealthiest people. >> i ha
't want to miss this tape. >>> plus my interview with ohio senator sherrod brown on what looks like a massive win for progressives and elizabeth warren. >>> then senator debbi stabenow of michigan on the latest in the fight to end republican obstruction. and the people creating petitions on the white house website are getting more and more creative. we'll tell you what the new petition to build a death star. >>> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. democrats are determined to extend the middle class tax cuts before the end of the year. that's the bottom line. party leaders and members are all on the same page. president obama rejected the latest proposal from john boehner. the president and the democrats are focused on revenue and they are determined to make sure that the top tax rates go up. >> unfortunately, the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks, for example, about $800 billion worth of revenues, but he says he's going to do that by lowering rates. when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> harry reid wasted no time explaining why the boe
that comes out of the story of secretary of state, john kerry's seat will be open. will scott brown run. he put out a statement saying he would support an assault weapons ban. and politico shows him up significantly by 20 points on the top for democratic contenders members of the house in massachusetts. members of congress for massachusetts. but i would say this. scott brown benefits from a little bit of, he's got very proud statewide name recognition, he's been out there. people liked him although they re-elected elizabeth warren. most challenging him don't have a strong name recognition. i would caution reading too much into these polls right now. it's still so early. by the time the special election were to roll around things could be in a very different state and scott brown has a lot of liabilities like he did last time around in a liberal state. >> there's a kennedy in the mix for that spot. there's name recognition. >> and ed markey started running against john kerry in 1984. dropped out of the race. made a run 28 years later. brown, sure we discount the polls right now. the fact tha
says that if scott brown who was just defeated by democrat elizabeth warren, if he runs, 47% would vote for brown, 39% would vote for a generic democrat. the democrats stand a chance to lose that seat and scott brown returned to the senate. >> well, there are two other polls up there. one of which shows him winning against democrats, the other that shows most of the democrats beating him. i think the fundamental structure of that case favors the democrats assuming they get a strong nominee. i think as we go through the next months and we talk about guns, we talk about immigration, we talk about tax fairness and the fiscal cliff. that's going to be tough for scott brown. people in massachusetts are not going to want to elect someone who goes down there and votes with these cooky americans. >> thanks for your time tonight. >> happy holiday. gh same to you. happy holiday. today, the nra made a stunning proposal for what it wants to do in america's schools. [ fishing rod casting line, marching band playing ] [ male announcer ] the rhythm of life. [ whistle blowing ] where do you hear that b
's a possibility. of course he lives in connecticut, i wouldn't absolutely rule that out. >> how about scott brown? >> scott brown has a tough decision to make. because with kerry going to the state department, this will create a special election. and scott brown lost in a tough 2012 presidential election year. bu he did win in 2010 in an off-year election. he's going to look at his numbers and say do i have the numbers in an off year. >> but, susan, he'd be running three times within six years. >> it's a lot of money to raise. it's a lot of campaigning to do. ip think it's a little difficult to come off of a losing campaign. he did win in an off-year, but he also won in a special election. i actually wouldn't be surprised if he was biding his time to run for governor. >> michael, what's interesting about scott brown, if you watched his concession speech, this did not seem like a man whofgs ready to leave politics. >> i'm not sure that pick-up truck of his could handle the mileage. >> remember, he's got that blue collar appeal. and that does play with many massachusetts voterst. >> hey, thank you,
the information that ted kennedy jr. will not run. scott brown doing well in all the polls. president obama will be fully engaminged in pass pass. how is that looking? they don't have a big horse to run. >> the polls show a good chance of scott brown being able to at least have the even money to win back a senate seat in massachusetts. when you talk to the democrats, they say look, the way that scott brown was able to win in 2010 were under very special circumstances. huh a democratic candidate who was not running a good campaign. the democrats were caught unaware and very surprised. you had that very tough debate on health care. you have the vacancy and democrats say you won't have all the situations at the end. they might be able to beat scott brown in a special contest. >> always tough. you think they can pull it off. lastly it was about chuck hegel, feeling it from the left and the right. the defense built up and every time he takes a twitter, he seems to take out chuck hegel. it was a process by which the president gets leaked out. >> two problems that are besetting chuck hegel. he is
, the focus is shifting to his potential replacement in massachusetts. senator scott brown, who was defeated last month by elizabeth warren, appears to be the clear choice for republicans. a poll conducted before the selection of kerry found brown dominating the field. the wbur poll also shows the senator topping any democrat by eight points. brown is yet to say whether he plans to run in the special election. as for the democrats, it's only clear who's not running right now. ted kennedy jr. was floated as a possible contender, but he says he's not interested. kennedy said he was grateful for the offers of support, but he considers connecticut to be his home, leaving the door open for a potential future run in that state. and actor and director ben affleck isn't ready to leave hollywood. the "argo" star, who had showed interest in politics, confirms he doesn't want kerry's seat, saying "i love massachusetts and our political process, but i am not running for office." >>> former president george h.w. bush is in the intensive care unit at houston methodist hospital this morning after suffering
. >> bill: you know, republicans are saying this is a slam dunk then for scott brown. but jennifer, i would have to say wait a minute! slow down. things have really changed. number one, scott brown is tarnished because he lost to elizabeth warren. this is a far different cry from when he was elected against a weaker candidate. and number three scott brown if he runs again would have some tough opposition, either duval patrick or i spent a good deal of time saturday night with ed markey who would be a phenomenal candidate. ed told me he is seriously considering -- he came close to telling me he would run for senate if kerry gets the nomination. >> jennifer: breaking news! how do you like that! >> bill: i didn't announce it. i'm saying he's seriously considering it. i think he would an phenomenal candidate. >> jennifer: he would. i would say, i don't know him as well as i know duval patrick who is a great -- he would be fabulous too. it would be interesting to see because if there's a vacancy, i think duvall patrick has
that republican scott brown could take that open senate seat if in fact john kerry steps down. but this white house tonight made a bigger political calculation. they could not start off with a bloody battle over benghazi. >> bret: busy night at the white house. other news as well. >> just in the last hour, speaker john boehner came over here. it was rather quickly that this came together. he is behind closed doors right now with the president, talking about the fiscal cliff. this may be a last ditch attempt to try to get a deal. >> president obama was not fretting about the fiscal cliff as he strolled to a holiday party, joking with fox news about the warm weather and expressing hope about a deal. >> it's a work in propro gress. >> speaker boehner not so hopeful. >> it's this issue. spending. he rails against what he claims is not enough spending cut in the proposal and slammed the push for executive powr to raise the debt ceiling something that the democrats never would have given former president george w. bush. >> do you think there is any chance senator obama would have done that? zero. c
bit closer with the elizabeth, warren brown race. 63% to maybe about 43%. so all throughout these trumped up charges of her not being very bright and trustworthy, they always ep ended every sentence with but you know, senator kerry would be a, you know, confirmed without a hitch. so this is about his partisan as we have seen republicans. >> now, joan, the congresswoman raises the politics of it, which i want to raise. but it was very personal. a source close tells us this week that it has been vicious, says rice lawless who spoke on the condition of anonimty. there is a strain of sexism in these attacks. and when you look at them saying she's not very bright, look at her background. 2009 until now, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. 2004, foreign policy advisors to the john kerry campaign. 1993 to 2001 in the clinton administration. she's a road scholar. a ph.d. from oxford yumpbts. i mean, to say she's not bright is just absolutely outrageous. >> no, i mean, reverend al, the body language when they talked about her, lindsey graham say k i don't trust her. it's so personal. it's ve
scott brown in this past election, but now elizabeth warren is already in the senate. this is the other senate seat for massachusetts. today elizabeth warren was celebrating her confirmed seat on the senate banking committee. but meanwhile, scott brown just gave his farewell address and in his farewell address he said in the senate that he would very much like to come back. he told senators in his farewell address, "victory and defeat is temporary." that's how he said it. i would correct it if it was somebody else sighing it but it was him. victory and defeat is temporary. depending on what happens and where we go, all of us, we may obviously meet again." probably not, sir. you just got beat by seven points in a campaign where your main line of attack was attacking elizabeth warren for having native american ancestry. oh, also the bit about you making up stories about meeting with kings and queens. yeah, and then you lost. as an incumbent. by a lot. but still, you never know. has the scott brown comeback fantasy been inflecting the consideration of john kerry as a potential secretary of
needs every democrat that they can from the white house point of view. and scott brown is considered such a strong possibility for the republican side to take away the seat, in other words, that, as you said, the democrats are pulling in the big guns. >> erin, what do you think? is this clearly an important race for the democrats, more so than the republicans somehow? >> well, it is, but do remember that when scott brown, as a senator, scott brown and as a republican has often vote the with democrats when the white house needs him to, so even though the white house would like a certain democrat and a certain vote for their proposals, scott brown is somebody that they could court if he then still wins that seat as a republican. >> do you think this is a do-over for them not necessarily helping out the democratic candidate in the race against scott brown? >> it may be. yes. it absolutely may be, but, remember, that the white house has a lot more political capital now after the president won re-election and the numbers are back on his side, where they weren't at the beginning of 2010 wh
with hilary rosen and david frum, author of the e book, why romney lost. scott brown, the incumbent senator from massachusetts, but he was defeated but might run again if john kerry becomes the next secretary of state. he says this on assault weapons ban. listen to this. he says, what happened in newtown where those students were subject to that kind of violence, i supported an assault weapons ban thinking that others would follow suit but they are not and as a result i support a federal assault weapons ban. david, are a bunch of republicans now coming around on this because of newtown? >> i don't know that a bunch of republicans are. it's more of the ghost of the republican party. remember when the brady bill passed, there were 80 votes in congress. but that is the northeastern and midwestern and suburban republican party that by and large doesn't exist anymore. democrats hold those seats. but those voters are still there even if the members are not. >> you think that this is really going to get off the ground when the vice president has been assigned within a month to come up with new rec
by elizabeth warren in his bid for re-election, that scott brown will be the republican nominee. that special election i think is scheduled for around june of this year and there's already been a few democratic potential candidates who are thinking of challenging scott brown assuming scott brown runs for that senate seat, whether deval patrick, the governor of massachusetts, congressman ed markey, the long serving democratic congressman from massachusetts. there's been some other names mentioned as well, but it's going to have a political fallout as well as international fallout, but the bottom line is the president has decided to nominate john kerry as the next secretary of state. >> it is interesting, too, that the republican scott brown came out for gun control legislation, some form of gurn control legislation, which we have not heard from many sitting republicans. >> scott brown's position has evolved since the fallout a week ago of what happened in newtown, connecticut. he favored an assault weapons ban if done by states. he didn't think the federal government should get involved, but n
doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion. >>> how many times is charlie brown going to kick that football? because we know every time he approaches that football it will be take answer way from him. >> came to the floor to point out something that shouldn't need repeateding, but does. >> we should be embarrassed by what's going on and the state should grow up and really pay attention to what they are doing to this great democracy in america. >> the future, and america, now may have lost my train of thought several minutes ago, but if i continue to talk like this, no one will notice. and when i stop, you are to applaud my energy. thank you. >> nothing's off limits on "30 rock." around here there's always a camera in my face you part of my job, actually it is my job but on the hill, their job is to legislate. boring. some say the constant presence of cameras inside senate chambers is doing more harm than good, causing senators to grandstand and not actually do anything. friend of the show and msnbc contributor jimmy williams says get rid of them 'cause the he have north's back
race in massachusetts. and that means scott brown gets automatically back in. not necessarily. it depends on who runs against scott brown. i had a long talk saturday night with ed marquee congressman ed markey ninth in seniority in the house of representatives. he's told me, he told other people too, he would take a look at it which is just this short of saying he would definitely run. but if ed markee was senator from massachusetts, you would replace one champion on global warming with another one who is probably as informed and as passionate about the issue as john kerry is. >> absolutely. ed was the chief author of the climate change bill in the house. the same one that kerry led in the senate, eth has also done yeoman's work, going to these international conferences slogging through on international climate change and diplomacy issues. knows the issue. knows how it plays on the hill. it is a top tier issue for ed markee too. >> that would be great. >> now, you mentioned -- >> bill: we were chatting ear
. >> jerry brown was my dear best brown. i'm just dealing with his death right now. >> five seconds later, we heard rapid fire, bang, bang, bang. and i took off running. >> everything became so real. it was a lot like virginia tech and columbine. he came in with a hockey mask on. so obviously came with the intent to kill. >> any time you got two guys tangoing, you've got a chance to get it done. >> i'm pretty confident republicans will not hold middle class taxes hostage to try to protect tax cuts from high-income individuals. >> there is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing that we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue. >> it was real scary. everything was just flying. just tossed around. >> i grew up in a house with three sisters, so i think it's great for my boys to have a girl in the house, just to understand at least a little bit of what makes a woman tick. >> winner of the heisman memorial trophy is johnny manziel. >> grandpa, all the times we used to play in the hallway and throw the ball until we couldn't anymore, i love you with all my he
senator, scott brown giving his farewell speech to his former colleagues in the senate. elizabeth warren beat him but may not have heard the last from this pin-up boy. he may have a seat if john kerry becomes secretary of state. massachusetts's rule states in the event of a senate vacancy, the governor may appoint an interim replacement. it is how scott brown won his seat in the first place. if senator john kerry is appointed secretary of state as he's expected to be, scott brown could seek to have history repeat itself. it's been a long time, not since warren christopher in 1997 since the u.s. had a white man as secretary of state. whether or not that matters, is next. rush is simply revolutionary. our unique brush head cleans in three directions with up to 50% more brush movements than leading sonic technology. oral-b power brushes. go to oralb.com for the latest offers. oral-b power brushes. restore revive rejuvenate rebuild rebuild rebuild >>> minutes after the news broke that ambassador susan rice decided to stand down for secretary of state, reporters of the new york times were typ

. and sadly, that includes senator scott brown of massachusetts. senator brown came to us already something of a political legend, and in just a few short years he leaves behind an outsized legacy. we all remember how scott rose to national prominence in the election literally heard round the world. after the death of senator kennedy, there was an open seat in massachusetts, and a special election to fill it. and few people even entertained the thought of a republican winning. and for good reason. few states are as synonymous with political liberalism, democrats outnumber republicans in the state 3-1, and the entire congressional delegation is composed of democrats. but supported by his wife gale and their daughters along with some key early allies including our own senator mccain, scott appealed to the state's independents, ran a flawless campaign, and won. as he put it on election night, he beat the odds and the experts. and the people became the machine. i think that 2006 g.m.c. canyon that scott drove around in the election actually should go to the smithsonian. we all remember that nig
. he endorsed him in the primaries, the issue was a guy named scott brown, who is a former republican senators from massachusetts, narrowly lost his race to elizabeth warren and now what we'll have, there will be a temporary appointment and a special election in massachusetts. and, scott brown, notwithstanding my home state is democrat, is leading all the democrats, and the issue with kerry, it would cost a democratic seat, likely in the senate. >> rick: i want to go back to the idea the president badly wanted sutures rice to be the next secretary of state and made no secret about it and she had to go and withdraw her name from consideration. now, assuming john kerry wins confirmation, we'll talk about the process in a minute, does it matter if a secretary kerry is sitting down with a foreign adversary and negotiating this treaty or those sanctions or something like that? is that sort of a tactic a foreign power could use against him in a negotiating session? >> i really don't think so at all. senator kerry has been there negotiating and representing or country as a u.s. senator and g
. jonathan, we start with you. massachusetts, with we get to bring up the name again, scott brown, but we have to add to this ben aflack. >> that is right, not only is there an election to be had. but there could be an interim appointment, you could think of a kennedy as a possible can dated for that, you have three others that may be interested in that seat, any number of names, scott brown probably the leading candidate, and william weld may be interested in that spot, so there's a lot of names floating out there. we will have to see what shakes out and of course, i'm going to lead in a little bit to somebody in another state, with ben afflack, and you may see ashley judd to ballot this year. >> i think you were reading my notes. let's talk about ashley judd you see her at all the kentucky games. she is at all the basketball games. she is potentially going up again a five term senator here. is it possible that ashley judd may take the nod here? >> mcconnell is worried. he and polling about ashley judd, if he is polling he is worried. his numbers are not great and his colleague was not h
. and scott brown with a command been lead in a lot of the polls. can any democrat give him a run for his money? >> i think so. i think several members have talked about running. it's a very democratic state. i think the republican party brand is at an all-time low. by the time we get to the special election in march or april, it will probably be lower based on the performance this week, so i think we'll have a real good shot. the white house and party are going to commit to do whatever they can to make sure we're competitive. >> can i respond quickly? >> very quickly. >> scott brown is a different kind of republican, very moderate. most massachusetts individuals really like him a lot. his only downfall is he was running for reelection in a heavy presidential year. >>> a major turning point for the housing market. we'll have that next. >>> president george h.w. bush is in guarded condition. a family spokesman says his doctors are cautiously optimistic. he's alert, talking with his family, but a few setbacks have kept him in the hospital, including a persistent fever. >>> it looks like 201
